I need to edit my system init script to turn user quotas on at startup.  I don't know what the init script is called. Can anyone help?

 In /etc/rc.d, or perhaps /etc/rc*.d, you will find lots of scripts that are executed when the system changes a run-level, which includes booting up.  You could insert a new script in there to turn quotas on.  Note that the script should be a letter S followed by a number followed by the script name.  'S' scripts 'start' things ('K' scripts kill them) and the number indicates the order to execute the script.
  However, are you sure you need to turn quotas on at each reboot?  Try doing a man -k quota and see if you have a 'quotaon' type command, which lets you specify quotas are enabled for a file-system.  Then, you can just forget about it and the quotas will always be enforced by the system until you run 'quotaoff'.
